We had an allergy doctor appointment for Gabriella today. She is doing great now, but they did confirm that she is severely allergic to drugs with penicillin (amoxicillin) and sulfur (bactrim). They said she will need to stay away from all drugs in those two families. They told us to be extremely careful with all drugs she is given and to never allow a doctor to give her a shot of any kind of antibiotic, even if it is not in those two drug families. We are so thankful that we know whatwas going on now and we can avoid those types of antibiotics.
Samuel had a doctor appointment too. Jay took him while I was with Gabriella at her appointment. Basically he just had a physical done for pre-op. There was some forms that never made it from Baltimore, so we are hoping we did what they wanted us to do. We leave next week for Baltimore. When we return, Samuel should be feeling better than he has been in a long time. The last two weeks have been better than they were before, but nothing like before his accident. Please continue to pray that he stays healthy, that he is emotionally and mentally prepared for what decisions have to be made, that God places a hand of protection over Samuel and our family at home, that God's will is done and that we all grow through this.
